Race horse girls story has also become the top-selling spring 2018 TV anime title

According to Oricon's latest weekly Blu-ray sales ranking reported today, the second Blu-ray volume of the TV anime Uma Musume Pretty Derby (August 15 release) sold about 13,000 units in its first week, becoming the top-selling Blu-ray disc of the week (August 13-19) in Oricon's overall sales ranking including all genres.


The anime's first volume was released in Japan on July 18 and also sold a very good 15,596 units in its debut week, which was the highest first-week sales record among the spring 2018 TV anime. The second top-selling title was Persona 5 with 9,367 units, and the third was Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online with 5,660. But because of two strong competitors, Pixar Animation Studios' Coco and boy idol group Sexy Zone's live Blu-ray "Summer Paradise 2017," its highest position in the overall ranking was only third.
